Variations for Upright Stationary Lunges

  • Stationary Lunges

    The ball gives you a little bit of stability and makes stationary lunges more interesting than they are without the ball.

  • Lunges

    This develops leg strength as well as arm and core strength while you work one leg at a time.

  • Ball To Floor Lunges

    This exercise adjoins the upper body with the lower body-you will get a back and shoulder workout by touching the ball to the floor and a leg workout by doing the lunges.
